Morales sent shock waves all across Latin America when he announced he was stepping down from the presidency to avoid continued bloodshed between Bolivians before accepting asylum in Mexico. The first indigenous Bolivian president announced his resignation in a message on television, after returning to the coca-producing region of Chapare, his political and Union base, after having unsuccessfully sought… Continue ->

Lula’s Release Will Only Reinvigorate the Pink Tide Against U.S. Hegemony in Latin America

Published 2019-11-13 16:30:04 by Paul Antonopoulos in Brazil, Headline-News, Latin-America

The Workers Party (PT) ruled Brazil, mostly under the leadership of the charismatic Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, or simply known as Lula, from 2003 until his successor’s impeachment in 2016. This period saw Brazil undergo major changes and advancements with an emphasis on educating the poor, providing access to healthcare for all Brazilians, poverty reduction and Latin American integration. Although the PT did not challenge the capitalist system entirely, there was an emphasis on reducing the neoliberal model that has exploited South America since Chilean dictator Augusto Pinochet allowed his country to be economically ruled by this U.S.-endorsed system… Continue ->


STUDY: Bacteria May Accelerate Climate Change

Published 2019-11-13 16:00:02 by Drago Bosnic in Anglo-5, Headline-News, Science, United-Kingdom

LONDON – As bacteria adapt to hotter temperatures, they speed up their respiration rate and release more carbon, potentially accelerating climate change. By releasing more carbon as global temperatures rise, bacteria and related organisms called archaea could increase climate warming at a faster rate than current models suggest. The new research, published today in Nature Communications by scientists from Imperial College London, could help inform more accurate models of future climate warming. Bacteria and archaea, collectively known as prokaryotes, are present on every continent and make up around half of global biomass — the total weight of all organisms on… Continue ->

TEHRAN – General Mohammad Baqeri paid tribute to the country’s missile system architect in a birthday speech. In recent years, amid a decades-old arms embargo by Western countries, Iran has created a wide range of internally designed ballistic and cruise missile systems, with officials repeatedly warning that these weapons would be widely used if Iran experiences any aggression. Iran owes its missile capabilities largely to the late Revolutionary Guards aerospace commander and ballistic missile designer Hassan Tehrani Moghaddam, Armed Forces Chief of Staff Maj. Mohammad Baqeri said on Tuesday. “The efforts of the martyr Tehrani-Moghaddam have paid off and made… Continue ->

Published 2019-11-13 15:00:46 by Drago Bosnic in Anglo-5, Defense, Headline-News, United-States

WASHINGTON, D.C. – US military bases in Florida and Arizona could experience heat indexes greater than 100 degrees Fahrenheit for four months each year in the coming decades if carbon emissions are not reduced, a study by the advocacy nonprofit Union of Concerned Scientists warned. According to the nonprofit’s data, which was released in Excel file format, many military bases across the continental US are expected to see extremely hot days. Specifically, Marine Corps Air Station Yuma in Arizona and Florida’s MacDill Air Force Base and Homestead Air Reserve Base will bear the brunt of the heat and experience heat… Continue ->

Russian Ambassador: Greece should not trust NATO propaganda

Published 2019-11-13 14:30:29 by Paul Antonopoulos in Eurasia, Greece-Eurasia, Headline-News, Russia

ATHENS – Russia is likely to assist in the tensions and conflicts between Greece and Turkey, and Turkey and Cyprus beyond the UN if they so request, the Russian Permanent Ambassador to the EU Vladimir Chezhov said in an interview with Sputnik Greece. “We have not yet heard the requests of the three countries to Russia for assistance beyond what is happening within the UN Security Council,” he said, noting, that the S-400 system received Turkey from Russia does not threaten Greece because it is not an offensive weapon but a purely anti-aircraft defense system. Commenting on the Greek-American defense… Continue ->

An American national of Arab origin who is an ISIS-affiliated jihadist sent by Turkey to Greece remains in the dead zone, where he spent another night.

By Vladimir Gujanicic – After twenty minutes of flying over pastures and hills, we landed at the not-so-large airport of Chechnya’s capital, Grozny. As we left the airport, we were greeted by our hosts, who from the very first moment tried their best to leave the best impression. After a short trip, we found ourselves in a hotel in the center of the city. The first impression when looking out the car window is the construction cranes everywhere along the road we passed and the impeccable cleanliness of the public spaces. In the hotel where we are located the service… Continue ->
